My Brother's Keeper


Today Reiley starts Lil' Kickers soccer at the YMCA. (I don't have to work today, so I'll get to see this first "game" of the season. Yay!) We all went to the mall this morning to get him outfitted: cleats, shin guards, socks and shorts; because he's grown from a big 3-year-old (see last year's photo) into a bigger 4-year-old, and nothing from last year fits him anymore.

While Karina's wallet was still smoking, I talked to Reiley about what position he might play, and asked if he might want to be the goal-keeper.

"Maybe. I don't know, yet."

When it was Luke's turn to sit on my lap, he said, "I'm going to be the ZOO-keeper."
I think he heard someone say that Reiley's team this year might be the "Pandas".Zoo-keeper Luke, with Madison and Kate

    I can't blame him for coming up with wanting to be a Zoo-keeper, with all those animals you are catching (and trying to catch) around your house!

    Besides, who wouldn't want to keep those two cute little critters sitting next to him?!!

    Have a very blessed day, dear sister. Ella is taking shape. :-)

    God's Grace.
